According to the National Eating Disorders Association, among female high school athletes in aesthetic sports, 41.5 percent reported disordered eating. A study on female Division II college athletes showed that 25 percent had disordered eating, and the numbers were similar for their male counterparts. As a coach of young participants, these statistics can be eye-opening. This webinar will provide you with the knowledge to help you, your participants and parents navigate the sometimes tricky world of eating to fuel performance while developing a healthy relationship with food.
CAO and Hydro One are excited to present this new opportunity through our continued Safe Sport 101 partnership. Safe Sport 101 is a virtual hub designed to give coaches the tools they need to make sport safe, fun and inclusive for all. This partnership with Hydro One will bring a series of upcoming webinars focused on safety in sport. Together we are helping to build a culture of safety both physically and emotionally for coaches and athletes across Ontario.
